    Those shuttle racks are REALLY nice for 4+ bikes, esp if you're shuttling all the time, but for casual use, its a nightmare. I ended up ditching my alta rack to a buddy cuz it took up a 1/4 of my garage any time I didn't use it.

    did 11-12 hours from bryce canyon utah to colorado springs with a pit stop in denver for some cross tires from a guy on here. left utah around 7 (my aunts were impressed with how fast my transition was from waking up to driving away. 5ish minutes since i packed everything up the night before and just needed to fold the rtt up) and got to springs around 6. not that bad.

    Something I didn't think about, you basically need a dedicated MTB vehicle for one, or a lot of kids that ride to justify it lol.

    My biggest beef was it added 3+ ft to my vehicle at minimum always. The 1up you can fold in tight and it only adds a foot

    Most MTBers will vouch for the 1Up but my Rockymounts Monorail has been fantastic the last three years.

    Boise and the surrounding area has some really fun trail riding. The Military Reserve area is similar terrain to the BST around SLC, but is a much more extensive network, less crowded and generally built/maintained better.

    If you're inclined you can connect the Military Reserve trails up to Bogus Basin. Bogus itself is small, but has some fun trails Around the Mountain is a short but fun ride. They have a bike park there, but again, fairly small. The real money trail is dropping into Eastside/Sweet Connie just down hill from Bogus's lot. That trail is incredibly fun (fast), has some really neat features... optional log rides, awesome rock features, skinnies. Starts out in piney forest and ends up in the sagebrush lowlands. It is fast and it is loose and it is loose. Like, really loose- late season Park City riding feels like asphalt compared to Boise!

    I hear La Grande, Oregon has some pretty fun riding as well. Might be a good pit stop between Seattle and Boise, get out and stretch the legs... I've been through there and the terrain seems like it would lend itself to good riding, but I've never had the opportunity to stop and check it out.

    +1 on the 1up!

    Have a buddy in Boise so it'd just be a overnight couch crashing then on my way to B-ham. I can ride at his place any time I want. The point of this trip would be BC, it's just a matter of getting there.

    Def heard about La Grande area through a buddy that sings it's praises too.

    1Up. Installed in stock bumper/receiver it easily clears the tailgate with two bikes, when the rack is tilted down.

    Pictures don’t do it justice. But this is my future bike cave. Yes, those are 150gallon water tanks hooked up to solar.

    It is heated and cooled.

    Is that actually a picture of you? You ride with a pony tail? I got a full mane going, locks down to/past my shoulders. I normally push my hair back and let my helmet hold it in place
